In early October, I was in residence at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) in Tallahassee, Florida. I was invited to lead choreographic explorations with the dancers of AXIS Dance Company, an amazing organization based in Oakland, CA with a mission to create, perform, educate and support “physically integrated dance,” a contemporary dance form that evolves from the collaboration between dancers with and without physical disabilities. This residency was transformative for me and helped me solidify some thoughts I was exploring about process.
